URVI Enhanced Skills Module Training

Unified Response to Violent Incidents, Active Shooter Training Takes Place in Sacramento, San Diego

Firefighters and law enforcement officers from around California were given an opportunity to hone their active shooter response as part of the California Firefighter Joint Apprenticeship Committee’s Unified Response to Violent Incidents enhanced skills modules.

The training, which took place in Sacramento and San Diego, simulated a pair of active shooter scenarios, allowing fire and law enforcement to work through realistic simulations, helping ensure they will be ready for the real thing.

“Training such as the Cal-JAC’s URVI coursework demonstrates how firefighters must train for the issues facing today’s communities,” said Cal-JAC Chair Dan Terry. “It’s a sad reality that new threats exist, but if and when they occur, California’s firefighters will be ready.”
